Our Morris Family Justice Center, led by JBWS, provides support and legal resources through a collaboration of partner agencies who will work together to answer questions and coordinate services.

Our Jersey Center for Non-Violence offers counseling services to help people examine their use of control, force and/or abuse within intimate relationships and to learn alternatives.
